In the Netherlands I can't watch NBC, but a dutch television station will air all the Olympic games live on the internet.

Even the USA WNT games. :D
That means that I can follow every game they will play.

For the Dutch people, or the people that wants to try: http://os2008.nos.nl/live/index/kanaal/1

The quality on the live feed is the best I have ever seen. the video is very good and frankly the sound is BETTER then on tv. I am really impressed with NBC on this.

My cable network say the game is on MSNBC but it is not on here . . . I guess you can only watch online if you own anything other than a MAC Power PC . . . this is not starting off as a very good day . . .

does anyone know if the NBC Olympic Soccer Channel actually exists? I called Comcast and checked all my listings this morning (at 4:50AM) so I could watch the German v Brazil match.

I also have a pre-intel mac, so I'm not able to watch any games online.

some people with mac's were able to watch. you just have to manually install the plug ins.

try installing silverlight directly from microsoft here:

It doesn't work for me.
After I have installed Silverlight, you first get a commercial.
Afther that, NBC says it is only available for people in the United States.

I'm living in the Netherlands, and it just don't start broadcasting.

BUT!! A dutch television station is broadcasting every Olympic match online for free!! Also the US WNT matches.
